B2B (Online) Campaign Marketer
What does the job function entail?
Our marketing team was established less than two years ago, and it's still in the process of maturing and becoming a well-oiled machine. What we need right now is a skilled builder to help us elevate our marketing strategies and outreach to customers.
Navigating Our Complex Industry:
The healthtech industry is known for its complexity, with constant changes taking place. Understanding how our products align with market needs requires delving deep into highly technical subjects. Simultaneously, it's important to note that in healthcare, a short-term approach spans three years. Thus, we're seeking an individual who can strike a balance between moving swiftly and exercising patience.
We've cultivated strong relationships within the development community that utilizes the FHIR standard. Additionally, we have a clear understanding of our target market and what messages we want to convey to them. However, the decision makers are not always developers. Connecting with this audience is a significant challenge, particularly in the US, which is a new market for us. While they are familiar with FHIR, our brand, Firely, remains relatively unknown. We need someone who can devise strategies to secure a position among the vendors our audience considers when seeking solutions.
What does success look like in this role?
Defining success in this role is a journey of continuous discovery. In the initial six months, success isn't primarily about generating leads, but rather focuses on achieving concrete milestones, adapting based on what we learn, and persevering through challenges. It's important to acknowledge that this role can be demanding as we work to reach our audience. It's about celebrating the small victories along the way.
In the longer term, around three years from now, success will be characterized by the quality of leads generated and the ability to assist our sales team in closing deals. An optimistic and resilient mindset will be invaluable in achieving these objectives.
This is what you will be doing:
As an online campaign marketer, you play a crucial role in achieving Firely’s ambitious growth targets. You create and manage our campaigns – both ad hoc and always on – that guide our main buyer personas through their buying journey. You know how to attract them and how to keep interacting with them, until the moment that they are interested in having a conversation with our sales colleagues.
- Creating campaigns to attract and convert new prospects. Based on a thorough understanding of customer insights, you decide on the messaging, assets (both products and content), and media channels needed to achieve our goals.
- Online advertising. You manage our Google Ads and LinkedIn Advertisement accounts. You continuously optimize our campaigns, keep track of the budget and decide on any new channels that should be added (or removed).
- Website optimization. You are in charge of our website since this is one of the main assets in all our (online) campaigns. You monitor website behavior, you optimize conversion and you adjust information on the website when needed.
- Nurture campaigns. You build and manage our nurture campaigns in Hubspot with the key purpose of improving engagement and enriching our database. You will use leadscoring as an instrument to warm up prospects and hand them over to sales when they are hot enough for follow-up.
- Collaborate with sales & product. Although we believe that you will have some pretty awesome ideas yourself, you will collaborate a lot with our product owners and sales professionals to get the latest customer insights and understand the crucial details of the solutions we offer.
- Sparring partner for the Head of Marketing. Whether it is an operational complicated issue or a strategic dilemma, our Head of Marketing loves to have a second marketing brain available to think along.
